Some pics I took today. The first one I took in Lincoln Park this morning while I waited for the bus. The flowers are from beds planted in the median on Michigan Avenue. The last picture is the sculpture of the characters from the painting American Gothic. The painting by Grant Wood hangs in Chicago's own Art Institute. The sculpture is called God Bless America and it was fashioned by J. Steward Johnson. It was installed in December 2008 and is now a big tourist attraction. It stands on Michigan Avenue next to the Tribune Tower and across from the Wrigely Building.
